About the Book

A wise and witty collection of quips, quotes, and musings from the world’s greatest geniuses and jokers, proving once again that “all thinking men are atheists” (Ernest Hemingway)

“The world would be astonished if it knew how great a proportion of its brightest ornaments, of those most distinguished even in popular estimation for wisdom and virtue, are complete skeptics in religion.”—John Stewart Mill

A counterweight to the profusion of pious collections, The Atheist’s Bible brings together the best of these “brightest ornaments”: great scientists, writers, philosophers, and comedians throughout history who have questioned the wisdom (and sanity) of organized religion. Far from a cynical polemic, this “bible” shares the same joy, love of beauty, and human wonder that religious books of quotations provide, but with a healthy dose of independent thought and without dogma.

From Sophocles to Homer Simpson, from Einstein to the Marquis de Sade, these geniuses and jokers provide an incisive, witty perspective on the eternal questions of God and Truth.

Critical Praise

“This slim, attractive volume will amuse nonbelievers -- and, ironically, cause them to spend hours reading about God and religion.” — Boston Globe

“If atheism’s going mass you need not just a sacred text but an easily portable one...” — Philadelphia Inquirer

“A witty compendium...With wisdom, wit, intelligence and probing queries, it bears snippets from a hugely diverse range of characters.” — Sunday Telegraph
